Barbados: DLP and BLP both tainted by mess, corruption

One cheque for TT$5 million to Patrick Manning’s PNM (Trinidad). Your Barbados tax dollars ended up covering CL Financial Group’s political donations.

Both the DLP involving David Thompson and the BLP involving Owen Arthur are tainted by mountains of mess – but the BLP mess mountains are more immense.

The Al Barrack mess mountain originated during the days of Arthur and the BLP. They know this and can’t hide it – or the $75,000 campaign cheque that Arthur invited into his personal banking account. VECO is another BLP mess mountain and embarrassing. Owen Arthur, Mia Mottley and Dale Marshall gave the VECO Corporation (Alaska) a government contract without tender.

Seems to me Arthur and the BLP is responsible for a lot of mess-ups, want to publicly advertise any and all errors linked to the DLP but hide and or over look their own. (Hint: That’s not working!)
